Thank you, but no that is not at all what I am saying.
If we were playing in the 4-3 & we needed a pass rusher opposite Mario this would make sense.
This is one pick outside of the top ten. This should be an impact player. Most DEs hate converting to a 3-4, because DE is not an impact position.
People were concerned that Mario would be upset about switching to a 3-4. They are saying Antonio Smith is not happy about playing in a 3-4, even though he has no problem sliding inside in a 4-3.
4-3 DE, impact player. 3-4 DE...... not.
It's like Tackles wanting to play LT, not RT. Or corners wanting to play corner, & not safety.
